Finally, something interesting growing in the woods! Ramps! These are wild onions, Allium tricoccum, also called wild leeks. I should have taken time to dig some up to make soup. It's a treat. But I didn't think I had the time (either to dig or cook!) Maybe I'll find some nearer home next week. I didn't even pull one up to show you the base. They have an elongated bulb, not round like a garden onion. They smell strongly like both onion and garlic. Put together with potatoes, you can make a yummy soup.
